Christ assured me that the arrival in the Church of several new movements is like a new 'dawn'. A new light is brightening the horizon; and we can be sure that life in the Church is going to change for the better, with increased reverence, a desire for holiness, and greater love for Christ and His Holy Mother Mary.
The Church was badly damaged by changes, events, opinions and foolish decisions that followed the Second Vatican Council, and by misinterpretations of Council documents on catechesis, evangelisation, the Sacred Liturgy and Ecumenism. The Lord has acted, for example through some of the New Movements, to mend the damage, and to restore faith in the constant teachings of the Church.
Just as the turning-around of a great liner takes up many miles, renewal in the Church is a lengthy process, now being helped by the New Movements. It is necessary because of decades of disobedience, outright dissent, and inadequate catechesis; yet it is lengthy because it takes a long time to slow down the foolish and unnecessary projects and programs in the Church.
God is enabled to act powerfully upon the earth, wherever people are willing to carry out His wishes, and so to fulfill His plan to lead us to holiness; yet His plans are delayed or stopped, on earth, where Catholics raise their voices, and challenge faithful Clergy members who are faithfully handing on the Faith in its fullness. Those who dissent on faith or morals undo God's work, unlike Catholics in the new Movements or Orders, or following in traditional ways, who persevere no matter what the cost.
New plants, vigorous growth: Where the Lord sees a Diocese infested with poisonous plants which damage or destroy those they touch, He does not root them out, but plants vigorous new flowering plants which by their astonishing growth, cause the others to be cast into shade and wither. Thus it is with the new movements, today, which He has planted to outgrow the weeds.
